lyrics

1. The Days of What's to Come

You stood there with a knife
you held it like a dove
the blade caught all the traffic lights
it was a blistering collage
your petals and my thorns
on the border of a daydream and a storm

let's take the vow, to show what is
lurking in the waters down below

I gamble on the failure
of time to make us strangers

when morning breaks
the night breaks too
in Berlin, my heart, and you

I wake up in the morning, try to call this home
the word slips out of my mouth like a stone
I'm drawn to lips, I'm drawn to yours
call me a guest and call me a host
I don't want tomorrow to hold my ghosts
I'm ready to jump, will you jump with me?

(to the days when we are)

drinking in, breathing in, loving in, diving in
laughing in, dying in,

the days of what's to come

about

Kliffs Berlin, Germany

Kliffs write recycled tone poems for the perpetually bemused, and pop songs for shy dancers. They channel the quiet of early morning sun rays tickling cloud banks and mix it up with songs better suited to late-night inner city bicycle rides.
